When his decadent brother Jehan dies of the pox, Claude ballet shoes on point Frollo, the puritanical and draconian archdeacon of the famous cathedral Notre-Dame de Paris, raises the deformed baby that Jehan had with a Romani woman, giving him the cruel name Quasimodo (half-formed) and keeping him in the bell tower, Quasimodo is deprived of human contact except for Frollo’s stern instruction, When a Romani dancer named Esmeralda dances in the street outside the tower as part of the Feast of Fools, she quickly becomes the belle of the cathedral, Quasimodo and the libertine captain of the guard Phoebus are both smitten with her, So is Frollo, despite his piety and his hatred of the Roma (called by the common pejorative term Gypsies throughout the show), and his obsession soon turns deadly..
In 1979, Schallert was elected president of the 46,000-member Screen Actors Guild, an honor held at one time or another by James Cagney, George Murphy, Ronald Reagan, Charlton Heston and other screen notables. Most of them had little to do but conduct meetings and issue statements. With Schallert it was different. In 1980 he led the union as it staged a 13-week strike over such issues as actors’ pay for films made for the then-new cable television industry. He told the Los Angeles Times his message to actors was that “we have to respect ourselves as artists” and recalled the pre-union days when actors were sometimes expected to work until midnight and be back at work six hours later.

Early on, Symphony Silicon Valley began hiring world-class, yet affordable, soloists, including pianist John Nakamatsu, violinist Lara St. John and cellist Gary Hoffman. It commissioned new orchestral works (four thus far) and has worked to build relationships with living composers. Saturday and Sunday, it will perform Gustav Holst’s “The Planets,” a high-powered favorite from a century ago, requiring 91 instrumentalists and a 60-voice chorus. It also will perform two works by lesser-known composer David Amram, a genre-bender whose friends have included Woody Guthrie and Dizzy Gillespie. Playing piano and Pakistani flute, Amram will be one of the 15 soloists for his jazz-influenced Triple Concerto.
